Aliens vs. humans: Eco-friendly extraterrestrials could wipe out planet Earth to protect other civilisations

For anyone hoping that the first spaceman to land on Earth is as friendly as E.T., they could be in for a shock.

In the latest bid to get us to cut greenhouse gases, scientists have decided that aliens looking looking down on our planet will be less than pleased with our emissions.

So much so that they consider there to be a risk of a pre-emptive attack against us to protect themselves and other civilisations.

When observed from afar the changes in Earth’s temperatures could be viewed as being a civilisation that has grown out of control, according to the Guardian.

Researchers at Nasa and Pennsylvania State University made the grim prediction adding that we could be seen by our intergalactic neighbours as being a serious threat.

Scientists led by Shawn Domagal Goldman came up with a list of friendly, neutral and hostile possibilities should we come into contact with aliensScientists led by Shawn Domagal Goldman came up with a list of friendly, neutral and hostile possibilities should we come into contact with aliens

Nasa’s Shawn Domagal-Goldman and his team compiled a list of hypothetical situations, should we come into contact with other life forms.

The Nasa Planetary Science Division wrote a report answering the question ‘Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity?’ and gave beneficial, neutral and harmful outcomes.

In the best case scenarios they write that we could swap information to overcome hunger, poverty and disease or humans triumph over a more powerful alien force and learn from their technology.

The report says: ‘In these scenarios, humanity benefits not only from the major moral victory of having defeated a daunting rival, but also from the opportunity to reverse-engineer extraterrestrial intelligent (ETI) technology.’

In the neutral category they suggest we feel indifference because useful communication is not possible and even puts forward the notion that aliens are too bureaucratic and tedious for us to join the ‘Galactic Club’.

Echoing the situation in the film District 9, when aliens are put into a refugee camp in South Africa, they could even become a nuisance to earthlings.

The most harmful outcomes are also suggestions that would fit well in an apocalyptic Hollywood film script with Independence Day-style attacks, accidental destruction of our planet or diseases wiping out the entire population.

Their suggestions to help with our survival against such events include warnings against broadcasts that might help aliens from learning about our biological make-up.

The first part of our contact, they add, should be limited to maths ‘until we have a better idea of the type of ETI we are dealing with’.

The report continues: ‘A pre-emptive strike (by aliens) would be particularly likely in the early phases of our expansion because a civilisation may become increasingly difficult to destroy as it continues to expand.

‘Humanity may just now be entering the period in which its rapid civilisational expansion could be detected by an ETI because our expansion is changing the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere, via greenhouse gas emissions.’

It adds: ‘These scenarios give us reason to limit our growth and reduce our impact on global ecosystems. It would be particularly important for us to limit our emissions of greenhouse gases, since atmospheric composition can be observed from other planets.’
